    I read in a TV Guide that this season, Sesame Street is going to do some episodes about good health since they're worried that two many children in our society are becoming overweight.

    Big Bird will teach us about exercise and Cookie Monster is supoosed to start eating healthier and less fattening foods.

    That's really interesting news. I doubt Cookie Monster will ever stop being Cookie Monster, but I'm glad they're focusing on health and diet. Someone needs to be sending a positive message!

    it's kind of laughable considering McDonald's isn't really considered hte healthiest food. or at least that;s what the experts say.

    Speaking Of Exercise,Does Anybody Remember A 1982 Episode Where The Count Exercises? :) :) :)

    I hope Cookie never changes. But that being said, I'm glad SS is taking a few steps since they do shoulder some responsibility for helping raise a good chunk of the country if not the world. :)
  6. They had BETTER bring back Cookie's "Food Rap" bit for this.

    last december in the dutch version of sesame street a new puppet was introduced. It was a chubby little baby pig. It was rumored that the american headquarters refused to build it at first because of the obesity issues in america. The puppet is called Purk btw.

    I remember a SS segment back in the day where a human cast member and I think Prarie Dawn were trying to convince Cookie Monster to try veggies. He fought with them for a while about it but he finally bit the bullet and in the end realized that he liked veggies. I always thought this was a fun and memorable way to get kids to give more attention to veggies. Something like that would still go over well as well as maybe a SS Dance Fest (a SS version of Richard Simmons' Sweatin' to the Oldies). They could have kids and Muppets dancing to classics like Put Down the Ducky or Doing the Pigeon or Cookie Starts with C. Good exercise and lots of fun. They could even put out a video or start a series.

    Oh Yeah! I Loved Captain Vegetable. That Was One Of My Favorite Skits Of All Time! Hopefully They Should Just Use That For Next Year's Season Since They're Just Making At Least A Couple Of Brand New Episodes About Exercising,Etc..
